HOUSTON, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- A Texas dentist is being sued by parents who claim their young son swallowed a piece of dental equipment during an exam.

Juhlia Nelson and Shayne Nelson claim in their Sept. 30 Harris County District Court lawsuit against Dr. Gloria Phillips that their son, Kayne Nelson, swallowed a piece of a dental instrument when there was an equipment failure during his exam, the Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday.

The age of the boy and the nature of his injuries from the incident were unclear Tuesday.
